    I have the same problem with my 1995 Audi, try using your spare key, then you're know if it's really your key that holds the problem.

My 2000 Passat and 2001 Audi A4 stall, don't start, engine noise, electrical problems and computer sensors are scrambled. What do I need to do to fix?

Check all the grounds first. Battery to engine, battery to body and engine to body are the main three that need to be there. You also have a few going to the engine and transmission from the wiring harness.

Hi own a Audi A4 1997 2.6 V6 model. I’m having problems sometimes on starting the car, the engine is fine and still sounds super the trouble is when I get in the car and trying to start it. When I turn the...

Assuming that your battery is in good shape at full charge, when you start the engine, it makes a click, that is the sound from a solenoid to make a contact so electric current can flow through the starter to make turns. The contacts from the solenoid get corroded due to aging and from sparks as several contacts performed over years. This becomes high resistance limiting current flow to the starter hence no turn, and also you can see the battery indicator becomes dull as to much current consumed through the high resistance path. Replace the starter solenoid will take care of your problem.

Audi a4 problem

I had this problem with my old Audi 80 and basically it was a knackered fuel pump. If your car is a few years old avoid the main Audi dealers and take it to an independant Audi/Volkswagon specialist and you will save a small fortune.
